Working on assignment at Harvard in a temporary (or contingent) role is a great way to get to know the University and gain valuable professional experience. We also welcome the return of former Harvard employees and retirees, who already know a great deal about Harvard’s campus, operations and programs, in a contingent role. New contingent work opportunities arise frequently.
Harvard’s managed services provider for temporary staffing is Yoh. Yoh manages a network of temporary and staffing agencies that act as suppliers of contingent talent to Harvard. Through them, you can apply for temporary administrative, clerical, IT, lab/science, research, creative and operations roles at all levels.
